Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Strongly Agree

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Strongly Agree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Strongly Disagree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Strongly Disagree

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

Strongly Disagree

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree

The state constitution should limit the growth of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Strongly Agree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree

Strongly Agree

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Strongly Agree

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Disagree

I support using a party caucus to nominate my party's candidate for Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, and I pledge to vote for my party's nominee.

Yes

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2010 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Life is precious at every stage from conception until natural death. Government must protect life, and the destruction of innocent life should never be sanctioned by Government or allowed under law.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

We are inherently sinners, and the nature of man is to fall into sin. Limits to power and separation of powers serve as a check to this tendency.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again believer, redeemed by our Lord, Jesus Christ.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

My history of conservative activism and the endorsements I have received this election cycle (and prior cycles) stands as a testimony to my consistent conservatism.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Open up the free market further. Reduce barriers to entry for individuals starting businesses and eliminate unnecessary occupational licensing for many professions where licensing is not necessary.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Encourage private employers to provide and subsidize plans where possible; encourage insurance companies to provide portable plans; change the law to allow high deductible catastrophic plans; encourage transparency and free market principles at the point of service, allowing downward pressure for most procedures through competition.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Remove barriers to entry; reduce regulation; ensure a level playing field. So called "Economic Incentives" are big-Government schemes to redistribute taxpayer dollars to "connected" businesses, and should be eliminated wherever possible.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I have been an Air Force Officer, a Large Business Executive, and a Small Business Owner. I'm a conservative activist, and have been active in multiple legislative initiatives through the years. I understand how good legislation gets passed in Austin, and I understand how to kill bad legislation.

I look forward to serving the residents of District 121 in the Texas House. I promise to represent all citizens of the district, and pledge to work tirelessly to Keep Texas Great.
